Hadley-Luzerne Historical Society’s Speaker Series: “Sen. Robert Kennedy & Family Rafting on the Hudson River”
July 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Sterling Goodspeed, Historian and Former District Attorney, will be at the Rockwell Falls Public Library for this edition of the Hadley-Luzerne Historical Society’s Speaker Series: “‘Sen. Robert Kennedy & Family Rafting on the Hudson River’ | During the summer of 1967, U.S. Senator Robert Kennedy and US Interior Secretary Stewart Udall journeyed with their families to our region and sought to experience the Hudson River whitewater. Long an athletic family, the Kennedys spent 4 days rafting through the upper Hudson River in what has been described as a journey filled with adventure and challenge. Mr. Goodspeed will discuss the planning, and share photos of the Robert Kennedy family on this trip, fondly remembered by many locals over a half-century later.”
